NEWS stands for North, East, West and South. What it means is that it will bring you the information from all the corners. News was earlier in form of newspapers or editorials; however with changing times, the way news is presented has changed. News is now available on dedicated channels and dedicated sites. People are curious to know what is happening in different places of the world and it is a tedious and challenging job to provide latest details. Hats off! To the news reporters and camera men who go to distant places in search of stories.
Being a news reporter isn’t a fancy or a glamorous job. It requires lot of dedication and courage to venture into unknown places and get the freshest bytes for your audience. You need to keep your discovery under wraps or there are chances that other channels may telecast it before you do. News channels are also being dragged into the war of TRP (television rating points). There is innate pressure on the reporters to get new stories or to be the first one to bag an interview with an important personality. Reporters are also classified in different categories based on the news that they cover. There are fashion reporters who uncover the latest fashion trends and blunders, there are crime reporters who cover the hideous crime and create awareness among the masses, and there are sports reporters who bring out interesting facts and information about current sports events.
These reporters need to have strong networking skills and excellent communication abilities. They say a successful reporter is the one who is able to get his foot in the door and then convince a person to part off with his time for the interview, that’s not the end; they should be able to make the person speak and grab some interesting quotes. These reporters live the life on the edge. They are fiercely competitive and very persuasive. They will not back off until they get the desired interview and news. Just imagine the effort behind keeping you updated for every second.
Time Magazine has named Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg as 2010′s Person of the Year. Spurred by the fast growth of Facebook and the 2010 movie The Social Network that detailed, for better or for worse, the origins of Facebook and Zuckerberg’s climb to the top.
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, is just 26 years old. This makes him the second younger Time Person of the Year in history, second only to Charles Lindbergh, 1927′s Time Person of the Year. Has Facebook truly impacted the world this much? When you look at the statistics, the answer appears to be a resounding “yes”.
What began as a service for college students, first at Harvard, and then around the US, has grown in just a few short years into a worldwide phenomenon. Over half of the population of the United States uses Facebook and 70% of Facebook users now reside outside of the United States. In fact, it is estimated that one-tenth of the world’s population uses Facebook, a remarkable figure when you consider the drastic differences of how the world’s population lives.
The Need to Share
What has driven the success? Zuckerberg is clearly gifted at marketing and business savvy, growing his company while keeping ownership tight. He also has to credit the human urge to share information and connect. Zuckerberg has built a network that allows individuals to do just that, to share information, photographs, videos, and life’s big events with a click of the computer mouse and a quick line of text.
The nod from Time Magazine as 2010′s Person of the Year stands as a testament to just how much Zuckerberg’s creation has changed the way we live. We cannot yet say if Facebook and other social networking sites are here to stay, but they have certainly changed our world.
With the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton scheduled for April 2011, the world has caught royal wedding fever. Why do the happenings of the British royals intrigue us around the world? Why do US women rush to buy the blue dress from an engagement announcement and why are companies and publications around the world trying to maximize on the obsession?
Few events are as elaborate as a British royal wedding and for many around the world, it’s hard to pass up a chance to watch something sure to be so ostentatious. Especially in a year when financial situations around the world are less than glamorous, a royal wedding is a chance to let go of those financial woes and watch the lead-up to something regal and rich. For many in Britain and around the globe, it’s a healthy dose of escapism.
It’s easy to get swept away in any story of the royal family. Since childhood, people in most countries of the world have heard stories of princes and princesses, royal marriages and royal affairs. Although the British royal family doesn’t command political power, it’s easy to see why they have stayed an important part of Britain’s culture and continue to entrance people around the globe. The personalities and stories are too good to resist.
Perhaps heightening the interest is the fact that the world watched as Lady Diana married Prince Charles, and then watched as the marriage fell apart, and watched as she met her tragic death. It was hard for anyone to not be cheering her sons on as they grew up and stay glued to media coverage through their many ups and downs of the teenager and early adulthood years. In the marriage to Kate Middleton, it seems obvious that people are watching to regain some of the grandeur of Prince William’s parents’ story, only this time, we can hope, with a happy end.
Headlines, gossip, and conspiracy theories have run wild since news broke that President and Mrs. Obama were not invited to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, planned for April 2011.
Royal sources have stated that Prince William and Kate have said that their wedding is not an official state event. They plan to invite those close to them and share their wedding day with people close to them, not necessarily world leaders. While this seams like a fair excuse for the lack of an invitation, it has been noted that French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni received an invitation to the royal wedding. If they were planning a smaller affair, perhaps this could have been a valid reason afterall.
Others have speculated that there is not a good relationship between the Obamas and the British leaders. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown did not receive an oval office visit upon one of his trips the United States.
There is also speculation that this cool relationship owes its roots to Obama’s own family history. His father, a Kenyan citizen, was a subject of Britain due to Britain’s colonization of the country. This would have been the case even at the time that Barack Obama was born. While this feels like a stretch for some, others believe it is the root of these tensions. WikiLeaks cables have also revealed that Obama and top United States officials don’t view British Prime Minister David Cameron in a very positive light.
United States presidents have been invited to royal weddings in the recent past. President and Mrs. Reagan attended the marriage of William’s father, Prince Charles grand royal wedding in 1981 and the marriage of Prince Andrew in 1986. It remains to be seen whether this new royal wedding will compare to these or whether the couple is truly looking for less of a worldwide extravagant celebration.
Time Magazine recently selected Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as their 2010 Person of the Year. Reactions, as they usually are following such announcements, have been a mixed bag. Many of the criticisms break down into three distinct groups: those who believe the pick was old news, those who favored Wikileaks’ Jullian Assange, and those who were outraged by poll results that did not choose Zuckerberg at all.
Some have recalled that in 2006, Time Magazine named “You” the person of the year. This was, in essence, a celebration of the way social networking websites have changed what constitutes news and how we view ourselves and our circles of friends and family. For many, Zuckerberg was at the helm of this revolution and has already been honored as a Person of the Year for his work in changing the way people communicate and share information.
Thinking About Wikileaks
For other critics of the choice, the choice for 2010 Person of the Year was obvious: Julian Assange. While Facebook has been important in recent years, Wikileaks has captured the world’s attention like nothing else this year. Many historians and politicians believe that this will be the real news story that is remembered when society looks back at 2010. Assange was the one who took open communication a step further by revealing government information to the masses and changing how we view news this year.
The Person of the Year Poll
Time Magazine also put forth a public poll asking for readers to vote for the Person of the Year. Mark Zuckerberg received 18,000 votes, while Assange received 382,026. Many have criticized the magazine for having a poll and then ignoring the results in favor of their own pick. Was the pick already final before the poll was released? Why have a poll if you plan to ignore its results? For many, it is the poll results that tell the real story of 2010.
